AmericasMart is hosting its October apparel market and fashion show. AmericasMart spans over seven million square feet and is home to the world’s largest collection of wholesale home, gift, area rug and apparel merchandise. Hundreds of vendors host showrooms and sell to the world’s retail buyers and companies. The October apparel market features spring, resort and winter collections. Temporary showrooms also include ready-to-wear, jewelry, accessories and more.

Markets like these are great for students interested in retail buying, wholesale operations, textiles, design and marketing. Atlanta doesn’t have many large fashion warehouses or sourcing companies, so students should take advantage of AmericasMart. AmericasMart also has an internship program for those studying marketing, public relations, sales, logistics and fashion, amongst others. Students can also volunteer to help with the market preparation and execution. All positions for this market are currently filled, but be on the lookout for any available positions as AmericasMart hosts numerous trade shows, exhibitions and markets a year. The market starts Tuesday, Oct. 16 and runs through Saturday, Oct. 20. If you’d like more information on AmericasMart, visit their website at Learn how to register to attend the market here.
